THE REVOLUTION WILL START VERY SOON INDEED!!!
- My old email address (socialiststeve@...) got hit by a virus today, so I've had to create this new one (revolutionarysocialiststeve@...).[For those who are interested (perhaps you want to search Google groups), I've had the following earlier email addresses in chronological order: stevew@... (sometimes displayed as stevew@...), S.Wallis@..., stevewallis@... and stevewallis@...).]My big project at the moment is launching a revolutionary socialist band called Galaxia. I have put a call out on the internet (details are on the Galaxia website: www.galaxiamusic.org) for musicians and singers to go to a recording studio tomorrow (Thursday 30th June). We will be doing three songs: "Do They Know It's G8 Time?" (my lyrics to the Band Aid 20 tune "Do They Know It's Christmas?"), "The Revolution Starts Now!" (an original song written by myself, including snippets from other songs) and "L'internaçionale" (my version of the international song of the working class: "The Internationale").We will put the songs, in a variety of formats (including MP3), on various sites on the internet, including the Galaxia website, later on tomorrow or Friday. Look at the Galaxia discussion group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/galaxiamusic for further places that you will be able to download them from.In the meantime, to find the lyrics, go to the Galaxia website or discussion group.This is of course just in time for the G8 summit, for which I am calling for a worldwide general strike. Of course it would be naive to expect workers to strike everywhere, and (for reasons I've put on the website www.g8summitworldwidegeneralstrike.org) I don't expect much more than a school students strike in Britain, but surely it would not be too much out of the question to expect a serious general strike which challenges for power (and will hopefully lead to a socialist revolution) somewhere in the world this G8 time (6-8 July in Gleneagles, Scotland; see my worldwide general strike website or www.g8alternatives.org for details of events in the run-up to and during that summit)...If you think that one person putting out this call cannot achieve much, ponder this: I've been sending messages to large collections of groups at http://groups.yahoo.com for a while. However, only those who chose to join the groups (rather than read the archives) and then receive each message individually (rather than as a digest or read messages on the web) have been able to find out which other groups I've sent messages to. Additionally, I've had to send messages in separate groups due to Yahoo!'s limit on the number of email addresses sent in the To: or CC: fields. I created 70 groups of my own (and sent messages out in two bunches).As a service to the working class across the world, I am including below a list of all groups (some of which I have posted to before) that I am about to send this message out to at http://groups.yahoo.com. Go to that website and search for a particular group name, or type "http://groups.yahoo.com/groups/" followed by a group name, if you want to find out about a particular one and consider joining it. I have included them in alphabetical order, except for two groups I have set up today which are at the start. [I will no longer be able to modify the descriptions of any of my previous groups or remove the odd spammer who appears from time to time.] I've included most of the groups I created under my old email address, especially the most important.The groups are as follows:
